Na I feel moms cause I am deathly scared of snakes 😩😩
I totally understand that but we’re in the theatre watching a movie and she’s got her knees hiked up,lol. Had to calm her down and reassure her nobody is going to let a snake loose in the movie theatre. Had me all sorts of baffled.

Snicker Bars. Not pictures only in person. If I see one in person I be screaming.

Just in case...BOO!! 👻👻👻👻👻

I like to interpret my dreams using this site, if it means anything.

Heights but I don’t think that’s irrational .

But When I let my dogs out at night Sometimes I randomly get scared and wonder if a lion or bear appears and starts chasing me 😂😂😂

Happens semi often , no idea why
I had that, except for the pool as a kid. I would start swimming hella fast to get out when turned my back from the deep-end. Thought a shark would attack.

Side-note: I made my way home with the quickness while walking my dog one night at 1am because I got an alert for a mountain lion 8-9 blocks from me.

I say mine would be open water, such as being in the middle of an Ocean.

Especially at night. Pitch black, not being able to see, or get a sense of how deep the water gets? Yeah, that's not it for me :emoji_joy:

Sometimes I fear my rollercoaster train will fly off the track and derail.

Sometimes I worry a logger’s lumber will fall off the truck and bounce through my windshield and impale me.

Sometimes I worry that the garbage disposal will turn on as I try to grab the fork out that fell down there.

None of you should watch The Final Destination movies.
